Situated on a sweeping curve of the Luangwa River, Chinzombo brings style and sophistication to the Luangwa Valley. Designed by award-winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, Chinzombo won Best New Property in Africa in 2014 and again in 2015.

This wildly luxurious camp retains its bush authenticity with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisitely tranquil riverside setting. Each villa offers panoramic views of the Luangwa River and the abundant wildlife that frequents its banks. Sprawling, ancient shade trees and private plunge pools offer comfort and relaxation for guests staying in any one of the six stunning villas.

Venture into one of the most game rich areas of the national park with the award-winning guiding team. The South Luangwa is renowned for its world-class predator action, with especially strong sightings of the elusive leopard. Explore the region’s diverse habitats with game drives, safari walks and boat cruises (seasonal). Pamper yourself with an in-villa spa treatment during your midday break between safari activities.

When acquiring Chinzombo’s location, a portion of the proceeds funded the relocation of black rhino to North Luangwa National Park, where the North Luangwa Conservation Program operate a rhino breeding and reintroduction project.

Insider Tips

  • Days in the bush usually start early, so a light breakfast is served at dawn before your first safari. A lavish buffet brunch will be awaiting your return to camp and is served at around 11:00 AM with the rest of the guests in camp, your host and guide. Afternoon tea and cake is taken at about 3:30 PM before the evening safari, and dinner for everyone is served between 7:00 PM and 8:30 PM. Dinner in the camps consists of a three-course meal (at Kapani in 2013 dinner will be buffet style), freshly prepared, cooked in camp and served to you at your table. All meals, comprising breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea and dinner, are included in the price of your safari.
